Cairo has got much of what it wanted from the COP27 climate-fest in Sharm El Sheikh, with $85bn of green hydrogen and renewable power mega-deals that have focused attention and foreign investment on a centrepiece of President Sisi’s economic strategy, Egypt’s energy hub concept. African Energy has analysed proposals from nine investment partners to calculate how much wind and solar generation capacity will be needed to produce green ammonia equivalent to 10% of current global production, which Egypt says it is ‘harvesting’, writes John Hamilton.

Commercial and industrial power developers see room for continued rapid growth in key African markets, with evolving deal structures proving competitive compared to unreliable and expensive grid electricity. C&I’s ascent is driving innovation in the terms of power purchase agreements and the profile of offtakers, write Tonderayi Mukeredzi and Marc Howard.

Ahead of elections next year, the team that has pushed reforms to the electricity supply industry is working to ensure international financial commitments for electrification and the National Mass Metering Programme (NMMP) are secured, and the broad lines of the All Progressive Congress (APC) administration’s policy continue, a senior source told African Energy. A particular focus is making sure that World Bank Group (WBG) commitments are implemented.

The unveiling of a number of major initiatives to help mitigate climate change, start moving towards offering ‘loss and damage’ support and stimulating carbon markets and other financing mechanisms was a feature of the COP27 climate summit in Sharm El Sheikh. African Energy takes a closer look at The Bridgetown Initiative, Alliance for Green Infrastructure in Africa, African Carbon Markets Initiative and The Transforma Platform.

It was supposed to be all about implementation and Africa, but the COP27 climate summit ended on 20 November amid disharmony and a failure to agree more cuts in fossil fuel use. However, a series of initiatives were launched that might not have gained as much media attention but which could help African countries match their development needs with clean energy ambitions, writes John Hamilton, recently in Sharm El Sheikh.

The issue leads with a focus on COP27 outcomes and includes a look at a series of initiatives that might not have gained as much media attention but which could help African countries match their development needs with clean energy ambitions. Coverage also looks at Egypt's green hydrogen and renewable power mega-deals – African Energy analyses proposals from nine investment partners to calculate how much wind and solar generation capacity will be needed to produce green ammonia equivalent to 10% of current global production. Power coverage leads with an examination of markets with weak grids, where renewable power generating capacity is proceeding more slowly than expected – African Energy looks at the potential solutions being assessed by developers. The issue also looks at the development of Africa's C&I industry, with evolving deal structures proving competitive compared to unreliable and expensive grid electricity. Upstream coverage leads with Nigeria and the potential impact of oil discoveries in the north-east as the country heads into election year.

This graphic consists of two small maps and a table focused on Egypt's green energy ambitions. The first map shows areas licensed by NREA for renewable energy generation (with potential capacity noted) and the Suez Canal Economic Zone sites. The second map shows the location of Egypt's green hydrogen hub and planned ports. The table lists green hydrogen framework agreements with data including renewable power capacity (MW), electrolysed capacity (MW), production start date targets, GH2 output (t/yr) and potential GNH3 output using GH2 feedstock (t/yr). The file is available as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.

Sub-Saharan Africa’s first gigawatt-scale green hydrogen (GH2) facility is expected to enter a new phase soon African Energy's AIX: Power and Renewables 2022 meeting was told. South Africa's 900,000 t/yr Coega green ammonia plant, being developed by the UK’s Hive Energy and Germany’s Linde, is expected to sign a 20-year offtake agreement imminently with a major anchor client.

After years of futile exploration, President Muhammadu Buhari has announced the discovery of oil in Bauchi and Gombe states in north-eastern Nigeria, just as his administration enters its final period in office. However, there is considerable scepticism about an announcement that could allow fragile northern states to tap into additional federal funding, writes Adaora Elemide in Abuja.
